The rest of my "birthday"...

The rest of my day yesterday was pretty cool. Jenny, Aerin and Caitlin came over in the afternoon and bought with them a yummy chocolate cake and very pretty bracelet! Also had a bit of a nap before they came. The steak was also everything I expected! It's my (recent) favourite, Camembert and Cranberry Steak with baked potato and sour cream... AWESOME!!!!!

If I look a bit hazy/sleepy on the pics, it's the pain pills!!!! But they're doing their job so I'm not complaning! Back at work today, just hope'll be alert enough! When I took those pills after transplant I didn't think they made me sleepy, but now that I actually have to concentrate I'm sure I'll feel the effects! They are schedule 5 pills after all...

Looking forward to the weekend! Will probably just watch a DVD with Chris tonight. Tomorrow night I'm having a 1-year celebratory supper at a restaurant with friends, but have to still organise all the details! Been a bit distracted lately, lol! Also going to a farewell picnic on Sunday, of a couple at church going to the UK.

Thanx to everyone who cemmented on my previous post!!! Really didn't expect that many comments, you guys are great. Especially thanks for all the prayers.

Found something else out yesterday that was very upsetting... a girl that went to school with me is in a coma on a ventilator... I heard she had cancer a few months ago, and she had a bone transplant or something, but she suddenly took a turn for the worse, and is now in a coma. It just shows you again that life is UNPREDICTABLE... and that you must cherish every moment and tell the people that you love how much they mean to you...

Update: Just learned that Tanya has passed away... Rest In Peace girl... I didn't know you very well, but you were always enthusiastic and your spirit rubbed off on those around you.

I have been a little bit out of the blog loop lately, so I'm just sitting back and catching up with you...congrats on the 1 year anniv. I remember your "birthday" well. Nate posted on his blog to be in prayer that you had your phone call. I remember praying for you and waited anxiously by the computer for word of the results. I now pray that God continues to bless you and watch over you. Praising Him for his goodness!

Congrats! I can't believe it's been a year already, how awesome.

Also, I saw your foot was sore from the gym the other day. I've had some soreness in my knee from working out too, and taking fish oil has really helped me. I don't know if that's an option for you with other meds you're on, but if it is, you might want to give it a try! What a great thing for you to have to worry about, huh? :)

I didn't have any dessert, you must be looking at the sour cream for the potato!
